The oldest of the five teens accused of throwing a large rock off a Michigan overpass and causing a man's death will spend 15 additional months in jail.

Kyle Anger, who turns 20 this week, was sentenced Tuesday to 39 months in prison. He will get credit for the 740 days he's spent in jail since his arrest two years ago.

Anger pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

In October 2017, 32-year-old Kenneth White died after a 6-pound rock crashed through his windshield as he drove on I-75 in Michigan.

Anger planned the prank. He reportedly loaded up his pickup with rocks and threw the rock that killed White.

Four other teens charged in the case accepted plea agreements.
